President Obama supported the Mexican government's human rights record,
yesterday,at the North American Leaders' Summit with Mexican President Calderón
and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
Obama said,"I have great
confidence in President Calderon's administration applying the law enforcement
techniques that are necessary to curb the power of the cartels but doing so in a
way that's consistent with human rights".
The event,popularly known as
the "Three Amigos" summit,was held in the Mexican city of Guadalajara,Jalisco and saw the leaders
united against drugs cartels and the spread of swine flu,although less progress
was made on trade issues.
